Probably

Probably. As a general rule of thumb, things will work going forward, but not necessarily going backwards. So, if an app was made for XP, there's a reasonably good chance it will work on Vista, 7, 8, etc, but not necessarily 9x-Me.

CNET is not the U.S. Department of the Treasury.

"Publisher's Description
From U.S. Department of the Treasury:

The Savings Bond Wizard helps you manage your savings bond inventory on your PC. It allows you to maintain an inventory of your bonds and determine the current redemption value, earned interest, and other information. You can also print your bond inventory, providing you with an important record if you ever need to replace any of your savings bonds."

Let's head to the publisher for more details.
